To enrol in the program, you must be employed by the University and be teaching, or supporting design and development, within a formal university course and/or workshops and/or seminars for students or staff. The FULT program focuses on continued teaching development and is not an induction program. The program builds on the participants' prior teaching experience; therefore, we recommend that participants have taught at a university for at least one semester/term before attending FULT.
Please note: If you have no teaching experience and are currently completing a research degree please register your interest in the Beginning to Teach Program. Please note: you must be teaching or have recent teaching experience while you are participating in FULT.
The program has a combination of online and in-class activities. Both are essential for successfully completing the program.
Remember that the time allocation expected for successful completion of FULT is 10 hours per module (2 hours face-to-face, 4 hours for assessment tasks, 4 hours for online material) totalling 40 hours for the program.
FULT comprises of four modules. You are required to complete all four modules and complete the assessment tasks associated with each module. Upon satisfactory submission you will receive a FULT Certificate of Completion.
The FULT certificate can be included in your teaching portfolio, and in applications for promotion and other forms of recognition. This program articulates with the Graduate Certificate in University Learning and Teaching, which is an accredited university program. Those wishing to leverage their participation in FULT as a means of gaining admission to the University’s Graduate Certificate in University Learning and Teaching (GCULT) will need to satisfactorily complete an additional 80-90 hours of reading and assessment work.
